I do a little bit of video production. Currently only using the i7 Mac Mini which is fine for shorts and music videos but I plan on doing a feature length film hopefully soon, and I'm pretty sure it won't cut it. I have a few TB Thunderbolt drives I'm currently working off of. My funds are limited, but I can use no interest financing on Amazon to lighten my load a little bit. But because I need the financing I'm stuck to Stock models only. Deciding between the entry level Quad Core Mac Pro and just working from the base model or the i5 3.4ghz iMac and maxing out the RAM. The difference is $1000, I know... The iMac seems like a great bang for the buck, but my biggest concern of the iMac is the i5 not having the virtual cores that FCPX takes advantage of when rendering out video and not having an SSD drive built in, I could run an SSD off of a ThunderBolt sled, which I had done with my previous iMac. I looked at a few comparisons but there aren't many people comparing a Stock iMac with the Stock Mac Pro. Any advice or people in the same situation out there?
